    Our Families thoughts and prayers are with Duke, Margaret, Rick and Susan. Having met Duke in 1966, and later working with him in the Jaycees, Duke always looked for the chance to smile and laugh, that big laugh. Those that new him will always remember that. Duke will be remembered as a Good Man!
